    New update available in Google Play Store. See 2nd screen shot for "What's New". The first issue I see is in "Watch On Phone". In "Network" it shows I'm subscribed to HBO and Encore which I'm not. See 1st screen shot.
    The other issue is in the guide listing. Channels that you don't want to be displayed can't be deleted, unlike the "Favorite Channels" options in the receiver.

    The app has never had an editable channel listing. You can hide SD channels and OD listings, but you'll see everything else, including SD and HD D* Cinema channels.

    I search for shows that I want to record using the D* app. I use i.TV for a guide app. Fully customisable and ad free at this point. Works much better for me.

    Hmmm... Perhaps I shouldn't have used the word "issue" when describing this flaw in the app. I've been using this app since it was first released so I'm very familiar with it. Being able to edit the guide has always been on my wish list, not just hiding the SD channels.

    The What's New" text reads more like it should be in the "Description" area, but the new sources are good to have, regardless of how it was presented in the Play Store. :)

    Same here, and I still can't watch anything, just a "Sorry, DirecTV has stopped" if I try to watch one of the shows on AUD. Is this app also supposed to let me watch things like ABC on Demand?

    No, until Directv reaches an agreement with more content providers, we only get HBO, Starz, Encore, cinemax, audience, and sony movie channel.

    You didn't mention what device you're using. There are some devices, like HTC apparently, that Watch on Phone doesn't seem to work with or just aren't supported yet. It works fine on my SGII.

    This update still hasn't fixed the issue where SD channels are displayed in "Browse by Date & Time" mode when "Hide SD Channels" is selected in Settings.

    BubblePuppy,

    I have an HTC Incredible phone and can watch shows fine on it. I tested it with watching "Collective Soul" concert from the Audience network. Worked great.

    I could not test a pay channel since I do not subscribe to any of those. :(

    There are people who use HTC phones that this feature is not working for them. This could be a screen resolution issue, who knows why it works for some and not others.

  14. Well the information shared was nice and it looks like a good application. I am also android user but never tried this. It works with some channels such as HBO, starz, sony etc. Hope it will be available soon with more channels.

    Encore is shown as subscribed under the Networks tab but if I select a movie it says my subscription does not include the channel. :confused:

    For now, you're SOL. Playback of anything other than trailers doesn't work on the DROID 4. Hopefully, DirecTV fixes this sooner than later.
